Scope and content
Sketch of an individual portrait of a little girl, probably Elma Bruce [five years old at the time], shown standing in profile, holding a book. The figure is wearing a crinoline-supported skirt ending just below the knee. The bodice has slim-fitting sleeves. Her shoes are flat with straps or ribbons around the ankle. Her hair is smooth to the crown with curls falling from the top of the neck at the back and falling forward down the side from a part at eye level. At the bottom left corner of the work is a sketch of a landscape, 2x2.4 cm.
